Hi Yorn,

I'm trying to compile oggSilence (many thanks, that's exactly what I
need!), but when I run "configure", it seems to be missing some stuff:

checking for THEORADEC... no
checking for THEORAENC... no

This seems to be the reason why "oggSilence" doesn't get
(WANT_OGGSLIDESHOW is then set to false, and the tool doesn't get built).

I seem to have all the required libraries on my Ubuntu 9.04 system, though:

ii  libtheora-bin                             
1.0-2                                                      The Theora
Video Compression Codec (example encoder, decoder)
ii  libtheora-dev                             
1.0-2                                                      The Theora
Video Compression Codec (development files)
ii  libtheora0                                
1.0-2                                                      The Theora
Video Compression Codec

Any suggestion? By the way, why should oggSilence depend on the theora
libraries? Shouldn't it just need Ogg and Vorbis libraries?

Thanks for everything,
